I found that when I perform two calls to a C program, and the second string returned by C is smaller than the first one, COBOL does not recognize the 0x0 character and shows the two strings overlapped.
The first call returns 'file11111.txt', and the second 'file2.txt'. Then COBOL understands 'file2.txt txt'.
Dump of p_szFile in C program ='file11111.txt'

FILE-W IN COBOL=file11111.txt
Dump of p_szFile in C program ='file2.txt'
66 69 6C 65 32 2E 74 78 74
FILE-W IN COBOL=file2.txt txt
